A store clerk with remarkably swift fingers is stunning the Internet with his keen inventory skills.
A video of the man taking stock of products in his store on a calculating device has been viewed more than a million times on YouTube in less than a day.
The viral clip shows the man in jeans, sneakers and a grey polo shirt standing in front of an open door in the frozen food aisle of a grocery store. A square-shaped device rests on his leg, which has a keypad on it. He scans the food items inside the fridge with his eyes as his fingers dance at a lightning-quick rate of speed on the keypad. As he punches in the data, the man never looks down at his device and focuses solely on what’s inside the refrigerator.
From a distance, it looks like the man is playing an intense song on an invisible guitar, but it appears he’s doing much more than simply having some fun with his fingers.
The camera zooms in closer to show that the clerk isn’t just randomly banging out numbers — there’s a precise method to the rapid tapping. The video’s description below provides a glimpse of what the worker appears to be doing.
“I slowmoed down and calculated about 80+ WPM at 5 per word. Although it’s all numbers so even faster. He said he had been doing this for 30 years! People that came into store would stop in their tracks and watch this guy with their jaw dropped. At first I thought is this for real and it was!”
Online commenters wondered how the clerk would do as a piano player while others found the sound of the rhythmic typing quite familiar.
“Me sending SOS distress signals during finals,” one YouTube user jokingly wrote.
